Bothernabreena Reservoir is located in Glenasmole, South County Dublin. It can be accessed from the city center by bus, however even the nearest bus stop means a fifteen minute walk to the lower reservoir. The upper reservoir is reachable by car.
There are two reservoirs in Bothernabreena; the lower one is small while the larger one is almost a mile long. The lower one is stocked every year so it has better trout. The fishing permit for these reservoirs has to be sanctioned by Dublin Corporation
March to September is the right time to make full use of fishing in these reservoirs. By Ministerial order fly-fishing is the only method allowed here; wet and dry fly patterns in small sizes are recommended.
